Manitoba: Subarctic summer wild

Manitoba: Subarctic summer wild


(instrumental music) – [Quin] It’s definitely a
surreal moment as a photographer to get the chance to see
polar bears in the wild. (grass rustling) (vehicle engine rumbling) (plane engine roaring) We’re at the Seal River Heritage
Lodge in northern Manitoba. We came here to see these polar bears. (boat engine rumbling)
(water splashing) (camera clicking) My typical workflow is chasing
down these epic landscapes. Coming up here to Manitoba, that epic view has just turned
into this living animal. And it’s one of the most
dangerous animals in the world, so we definitely have to take caution. And the Churchill Wild guides have done a really, really
good job securing us, making us feel safe around polar bears. We don’t want to affect
the polar bear’s behavior, so it’s been this big
balance that we need to find while trying to get the best shot. (dramatic orchestral music) (water splashing) Beluga whales have been super exciting. Some of them swam up to us on the boat. (beluga whales whistling) So there’s polar bears out
front and belugas underneath. Quite surrounded by the
wildlife around here. (water splashing) Super special experience to be able to see all
these natural elements coming together in one place.
